CalAtlantic Group Inc. announced a proposed public offering of 10.0 million shares of its common stock by a MatlinPatterson Global Advisers LLC affiliate, as well as an up to $100.0 million share buyback agreement.
The public offering is expected to include an option for the underwriters to acquire up to 1.5 million additional CalAtlantic shares. The company will not sell any shares in the proposed offering and will not receive any of the proceeds.
CalAtlantic noted that it will buy back the shares directly from the selling stockholder in a private, non-underwritten transaction.
The share repurchase is expected to close simultaneously with the public offering and is conditional upon its closing. The company said it plans to use cash on hand to finance the share repurchase.
Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are the joint book-running managers for the proposed common stock offering.
